Fair Housing Project

The Fair Housing Project works to protect and expand the fair housing legal rights of classes of people traditionally subjected to housing discrimination and exclusion. As part of that mission we work to assure that the state and municipalities are actively Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing so as to expand inclusiveness of housing opportunities in Vermont.

Fair Housing is Your Right!    

If you or your organization needs information, training, referral services regarding fair housing rights, and responsibilities, the FHP can assist you.

The FHP works with our partners to eradicate illegal housing discrimination in Vermont. We provide fair housing education, training, outreach and workshops. We collaborate with agencies such as Regional Planning Commissions to provide workshops for municipal planners, zoning administrators, permitting review boards, housing developers, and business leaders. Municipal officials and volunteer boards can consult with the Fair Housing Project for assessments and training regarding Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing.

We're Hiring!

We have an opening for a part-time Education & Outreach Coordinator. If you are passionate about ending housing discrimination, affirmatively furthering fair housing, and building inclusive communities and have experience with community education and social media, this job may be for you. Check out the job posting here.
